We present a 24-year-old man with an impending fracture of distal fibula, due to a solitary sessile osteochondroma arising from the lateral border of distal tibial metaphysis on the right side. He presented with a swelling on the anterolateral aspect of distal tibia causing mechanical limitation of dorsiflexion of ankle joint and with occasional mild pain. Imaging studies revealed a solitary sessile osteochondroma, abutting the distal epiphysis of tibia, and deforming the fibula. The swelling was excised and the histopathology was suggestive of osteochondroma.
